Soon to be released, the Panasonic LUMIX DMC-GF2 will be the brand’s smallest and lightest interchangeable lens system camera. Compact digital cameras with lens that can be changed like those huge DSLR models are becoming trendy and more popular.


Slated for a debut in December 2010 with sales to start in January the next year, the GF-2 is a fine example of the above. It has a 12.1 megapixel live MOS sensor and an enclosure seven per cent lighter and nineteen per cent smaller than its predecessor, the LUMIX DMC-GF1.


Compatible with Panasonic’s new 3D interchangeable lens – the LUMIX G 12/5mm/F12 – the GF-2 has HD video recording via AVCHD and JPEG Motion Recording. It also has a three-inch touch display which has a contrast AF format.


The Touch Q user interface system allows users to customise shortcuts with the most commonly used settings and an internal Dust Reduction helps to reduce risk of damaged images from dirt particles. The GF2 will be available in black, silver, white, and red colours with the following kit options: DMC-GF2C – 14mm F2.5 Lens Kit and DMC-GF2K – 14-42mm Zoom Lens Kit.


Pricing to be announced later.
